Last nite, we were subject to the full force of the North Atlantic with 12-16 foot swells and 4-6 foot waves. Fortunately the welcome harbor of Halifax, Nova Scotia was waiting. We'll overnite against the pier and depart tomorrow morning on our celebration of thirty years of marital bliss.
Our ship is wonderful, everything (and I mean everything) is provided. Unfortunately, it seems to be passengered by mostly Republicans. We did have one "run-in" with a couple from Southern California and have decided to not reveal too much about our leanings.
An interesting thing is that the Europeans are very concerned about what the election of Mittens would mean. The Canadians we've met are of a similar mind. One even said that if Mr. Obama isn't re-elected, they would be overjoyed to have him. Both the Europeans and Canadians have questioned whether the American right-wing is living on the same planet that the rest of us populate.
Tomorrow, we're at sea and headed for Boston to pick up with our modified itinerary ....... sailing !!!
